Oh my Lord, Amanda Palmer is on the premises and she looks fierce. (She and Neil Gaiman announced their engagement last week on his blog; I believe he's there for Coraline, so that may be why she's there.)
Tina Fey: "It's not rain! It's God crying for NBC!" It's gonna get interesting tonight, isn't it?
The show begins. You know, I am not a big Ricky Gervais fan, so... this will also be interesting. Oh my God, what was Anna Kendrick wearing down there? I saw a giant marshmallow ruffle eating her head. Gervais starts off mocking Steve Carell for stealing The Office and all his ideas (I am assuming Carell is making pouty faces because he's in on it; he mouths "I will break you," with the appropriate hand gestures). And now we're onto... plastic surgery and... penis reduction jokes? "I only have the one now... and it is pretty small. But my hands are small, so it looks big! It usually is. I wish that's what I was doing right now." (A strange, shocked laugh runs low through the audience.) I won't even try to transcribe the monologue because I'm sure it'll be on YouTube, but--"Let's get on with it, before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno." Big laugh. Yeah. It's gonna be interesting.
Oooh, girl, it's Nicole Kidman in a pale drapey pink/peach (all gown colors approximate, due to stage lighting). Nicely done. She mentions that everyone's wearing ribbons for Haiti, George Clooney's doing a telethon, so on and so forth. Best Supporting Actress! Vera Farmiga gets a big cheer! Anna Kendrick gets an even bigger one! Mo'Nique gets an even BIGGER one! Julianne Moore kind of gets one. Mo'Nique wins! I love the draping on the back of her gown, by the way. "First, let me say... thank you God... for this amazing ride... you're allowing me to go on." I guess this is her husband she's thanking? Also Lee Daniels and Gabourey Sidibe. She also dedicates the award to, if I am understanding this correctly, victims of sexual abuse.
So... we'll just transition from that... somehow.
Matthew Fox and... aw, hell, I don't know who this is. Sofia Vergara? TV category! Actresses play characters who do things! I need to watch more TV. Aw, yay, Toni Collette, I like her. Nice sparkly gold dress--if you're going to do gold sparkly, do it like that. She's very chipper and hey what, is that Paul McCartney? Commercials: mingling.
